The Last Tourist, which was awarded with the ‘Special Jury Prize for Social Impact’ by the Canadian
Documentary Jury at the Calgary International Film Festival, examines the
history of modern tourism and offers a critique on its current state of
affairs. It explores important issues including animals suffering for
entertainment, orphaned children exploited for profit, and developing
economies strained under the massive weight of foreign-owned hotel chains.
We meet local heroes who are leveraging tourism to preserve cultural
heritage, sustain wildlife, and support the social and economic wellbeing
of communities. THE LAST TOURIST empowers
audiences with knowledge and inspiration to make a positive impact and
fundamentally change the way we travel.
